In Florence, small restaurants serve the neighborhood and its residents where the Alimentaris and Tattorias are places for family and friends. Like in Italy, expect to find a little hidden gem, simple and rich. Located a few steps down, on the swath of Sixth Avenue sidewalk known as Father Fagan Park, this little snuggery has a winning air of relaxed authenticity.
Ciccio, is a neighborhood Italian Alimentari (Food) & Bar, featuring the specialties of Florentine cuisine through its quality prepared ingredients. The idea of this restaurant is just the simple elegance of traditional Tuscan food using local ingredients. Signature bread alongside a perfect piece of pecorino, and a glass of Tuscan wine to enjoy alongside Florentine dishes such as: Panzanella, Pappa al Pomodoro, Ribollita. Ciccio specializes in house-made pastas and Florentine favorites with the Tuscan idea that hunger is the best cook and where a “full stomach comforts the
Good atmosphere, great pasta but meatballs were not hot. Service and drinks were great
Dinner was wonderful. Very nice setting, awesome pasta. Looking forward to going back.
Delicious fresh pasta!
Enjoyed food, atmosphere, and wait staff. Italian with updates. Keep innovating!
The kitchen is incredibly tiny which I think contributed to the delay in our orders coming out from the kitchen. I was slightly frustrated by the lack of attentiveness from the servers. It’s a tiny restaurant so they shouldn’t have to be waved down from chatting at the host stand. The table sitting next to us, a party of 5 were obnoxiously loud and were over served liquor wise which I feel should’ve been de-escalated by management in order to make our meal more pleasant. Aside from my criticism which I hope will be taken constructively, the food was phenomenal and the ambiance (aside from the boisterous party) was lovely.
First time there, but will definitely be coming back. Excellent pasta.
The food was delicious and our waiter was so delightful. The downside is they closed too early on a Tuesday night because we were having a good time.
Good food good prices
Charming, inviting unique neighborhood warmth, great food and lovely service. A favorite.
Cozy and welcoming atmosphere with nicely prepared food. Really enjoyed it!
Just a nice local Italian but real care given to the food prep.
This is our go-to restaurant for lunch and dinner. Delicious food, congenial, familial atmosphere, very reasonable prices. The kind of restaurant that's a rare holdover from the neighborly New York now being destroyed by mindless "glamour" and absurd prices.
The service was extraordinary efficient, helpful, courteous, attentive, friendly, and professional!! The food delicious!!
Quaint little restaurant with great cuisine and outstanding service
We love Ciccio’s. It’s our go to restaurant in the neighbourhood. Whatever we order is always so delicious.
Charming little place. Friendly. Appetizers were excellent. Main courses were OK to Good, but not great.
Simple - overly attentive staff including the owner! Fantastic food, what else would you want?
Yummiest home made pastas and friendly staff makes Ciccio a lovely neighborhood spot that never fails!
I will be back for sure.
Would recommend. Really so cozy and authentic. Food is delicious.
The food was outstanding the wait staff was outstanding. The ambience at the restaurant was everything we expected. I Would recommend Ciccio to anyone who is looking for a good Italian dish in Manhattan.
Excellent Tuscan simply prepared and unpretentious. Friendly service. Old school bistro ambiance.
This was my 3rd visit; favorites so far are the bread salad and octopus starter, the tagliatelle with polpettini, the pasta cooked in Chianti, the lemon pasta with baccala (miraculously, not salty!). The Chianti reserva is lovely, and goes well with all dishes. Intimate, casual, low-key; perfect spot for pre- or post-Film Forum/IFC screenings. Will definitely be coming back.
A great, little Italian nook with a European feel. Food was delicious and our waiter was very nice and helped me decide which pasta I wanted. There was a nice energy but not too loud. My friends also enjoyed the evening.
Really great--delicious pasta with seafood--fresh, interesting, well prepared. Fish with thin potato shavings on it was excellent also-very flavorful.
Food incredible - secret spot - great crowd - fashion scene -
Fav spot in town
Staff pulled together a great surprise bday. Tira The owner/host was especially nice. Regular service left something to be desired. Food was below what I would
Great all around experience!
As usual --- both service and food were great!
Awesome experience. The service was amazing and the food was incredible. Will be going back
We have been fans since the restaurant opened; and make sure we have at least one meal there when we are in the Village. The menu is varied; the pasta is always freshly homemade, and the prices are reasonable. Their a-typical lasagna is stunningly delicious. Service is excellent. It's on a pleasant block in Greenwich Village, and you feel that you have been away from the hurly burly of the city.
Love this place- quality food in a relaxed atmosphere and you can get a table.
Delicious fresh pasta, really great. Friendly staff and good vibe
Great service and the food was very tasty. The time it took to get our food was too long considering that there were not very many customers at the time. A little loud, but not too bad, however the seating was uncomfortable and the tables too close together to have a quiet conversation at lunch.
Went for dinner this past Saturday; we were a party of 7. Most of the dishes were very tasty but we thought the portions were small for the price. I had gnocchi with manilla clams. There were about 15-20 gnocchis and about 10 little clams for $23.00. My husband had the pasta with meatballs and he thought the meatballs tasted mostly of just bread. The rest of our party seemed to like what they ate but were not too impressed. If this is a local restaurant for you I would give it a try but if not local would not go out of my way to try it.
We love Ciccio! It is a gem! Absolutely delicious food, great people working there and great atmosphere. Also excellent cocktails and wine list! One of my favorite places!
Quickly greeted and sat - cocktails came right away - no pressure to order immediately- water glasses always filled - food was delicious !
Love the home feel here
Great food and friendly service in a cute restaurant!! It’s a total win.
Everything tasted wonderful. The food felt very authentic. The people were friendly and welcoming. We definitely plan to go back when we’re back in NYC.
